Long-term partners 

Every year, several Caius freshers move with their partners and/or families. The Caius MCR prides itself on being inclusive, and this extends to all partners of Caius MCR members being regarded as honorary members themselves, a principle that we have extended and reinforced over the 2023-2024 academic year.

This entails that partners are entitled (and encouraged to):

  • Attend any Caius MCR-organised events (e.g. Freshers’ Week events, weekly port nights, MCR-SCR Talks, bops, etc.).
  • Attend formals as a “guest” (guest ticket required via the Meal Booking System).
  • Please note that children may also attend as “guests”, and the College has 3 high chairs stored in the gallery. Candles should be removed from tables with children under 7.
  • Attend certain tailored dining events, such as “Guest Night” or Superhalls with dedicated long-term partner tickets. Superhall bookings will be coordinated separately from the standard guest booking system, ensuring that having a long-term partner who wishes to attend does not deprive you of the opportunity to bring guests as any other MCR member would.
  • Have a “partner card” made, which allows access to the MCR facilities in the 6 Harvey Road basement (such as the TV room and pool room), as well as through to the backyards with outdoor tables/chairs and barbecue facilities. This is organised by the Caius student simply emailing head.porter@cai.cam.ac.uk with their partner CC’d, and stating their full name.


Caius students with children will also have priority places at the Mrs Cameron Day Nursery (on Sidgwick Avenue, near Harvey Court).

Additionally, the University of Cambridge itself has a number of other childcare facilities/nurseries, applied for using a single application form.
